I’m not entirely sure why this latest trailer for The Thing is red-band; it’s got some good shots of the shape shifting creature, shape shifting and killing a scientist or two, but there isn’t anything that should raise the ire of the MPAA. But anyways, if you recall the original “The Thing,” it started with a set of scientists investigating what happened to their colleagues in a remote section of Antarctica. This prequel tells the story of those colleagues who first stumbled upon the alien and paid dearly for it. Oh, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead takes the place of Kurt Russell. Check it out.
